How we explain overwhelm to our 5 year old

Our sensitive girl, Miss Rabbit, has had some big melt down moments over the past year. I’ve blogged about it before and we were struggling with how to help her avoid getting to these melt down points. As time’s gone on, I mostly can now see these episodes approaching. Impeding doom with no clue of how to prevent it. As her Mum, I can only do so much. I can provide some calm or some distraction but I can’t control her emotions for her. Continue reading

Yes, you can have pizza for breakfast!

Hmmm, I forgot to blog again! I guess if I’m honest, I didn’t forget, I’ve been telling myself I should blog for weeks BUT I had a bit of writers block so¬† just kept putting it off.

Its school holidays in NSW and my little preschooler is well and truly in need of the break! She could have gone to school this year, there are children in big school who are younger than her but we kept her back for that extra year. I dread to think how she would be right now if she’d been attending full time school because let me tell you, 3 days of preschool has taken it out of her! And a tired, sensitive child is an EMOTIONAL time bomb!

Passionfruit slice, Thermomix version

I blogged about this delicious passion fruit slice recipe last year when my passion fruit vine went beserk and we had more passion fruits then we knew what to do with. It was one of the very few recipes that actually used a decent amount of passion fruit, most would use up one or 2 but this beauty has 12 passion fruits in it! Obviously with all that tangy passion fruit, its one for the true lovers of passion fruit!

Thermomix Road Show

A couple of weeks ago I was able to attend the Thermomix Road Show in Brisbane with lots of members from the Northern Rivers Branch. It was a fun day with some great training by Bev Unitt from Be You Success Coaching and some Thermomix info and insight too. As usual the thing I enjoyed the most was the learning and the chance to connect with my wonderful branch mates! If you are in direct sales I highly recomend that you check out Be You Success Coaching, Bev is an incredible teacher who can only help you to be the best version of you which can only benefit your business. If you ever get a chance to go along to a Road show then I certainly recommend it!

How to baby proof your marriage…

Recently there was a post floating around on facebook but I can’t find it. The QLD (or at least I think she is from QLD, maybe Melbourne? She’s an Aussie.) Mummy Blogger Candice? Candace? Cadence? Carla? The one who says we are all queens and is a huge advocate for marriage counselling. She’s got blonde hair and a nose stud? I barely remember my own families names these days so I’m never going to remember hers BUT I hope you know who I am referring too. Anyway her husbands work mate confided in her that he and his wife had started marriage counseling and that the counselor had suggested that time at home needs to be spent equally pulling your weight in the chores and parenting…. Ummmmmm say what? This was a conversation I definitely want to wegh in on! Continue reading

Lemon Dishwasher Liquid you can make with your Thermomix.

3 months before Monkey was born we moved into our (fingers crossed) forever home. After moving 5 times since being pregnant with Rabbit we were beyond excited BUT Our forever home had an old (not vintage, not retro, just an ugly old kitchen!) kitchen and no dishwasher. Its shallow benches meant we couldn’t even rip out a cupboard and put one in. After having a dishwasher in our last few homes it was a hard adjustment ( #firstworldproblems I know).
